Setting the Standard for Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

Multiple Sclerosis Utah

Western Neurological Associates (WNA) has provided unparalleled diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) for over 40 years. In 1999 we established our free-standing Multiple Sclerosis Center, including on-site infusion therapy, dedicated solely to the diagnosis and treatment of multiple sclerosis.   

The Center is staffed by board certified neurologist, Walter H. Reichert, MD and certified nurse practitioner, Sarah Johnson, FNP. 

WNA's Multiple Sclerosis Center focuses on: 

  • Diagnosing and/or confirming the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis
  • Providing early intervention with FDA-approved medications
  • Early and aggressive treatment of MS flare-ups (exacerbations)
  • Treatment of MS-related symptoms such as fatigue, depression, spasticity, bowel and bladder impairment
  • Prevention of MS-related disabilities
  • Promoting mobility for patients with physical impairments
  • Thorough education about multiple sclerosis for patients and their families
  • Helping patients maximize independence and productivity

On-Site Infusion Center

Our Infusion Center provides infusion therapy for MS treatment as well as symptom management.  Patients enjoy a relaxing atmosphere with comfortable, over-sized infusion chairs, Wi-Fi and DVD players. 
   
About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a potentially disabling neurological disorder that affects more than 400,000 Americans. MS involves inflammation within the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), followed by demyelination (loss of the protective myelin sheaths which surround nerve fibers) and loss of axonal function. Symptoms vary greatly from person to person, and may be dramatic or extremely mild. Symptoms may persist for days or weeks and then partially or completely disappear. The most common early symptoms of MS include:

  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Loss of balance
  • Weakness in one or more limbs
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Memory and thinking problems
  • Diminished coordination
  • Fatigue

Treatment and Diagnosis - Our Multiple Sclerosis Specialists

Although there is currently no cure for multiple sclerosis, WNA offers a number of FDA-approved medications that have proven highly effective in treating MS symptoms and modifying attacks. Our specialists are at the forefront of MS treatment and strive to ensure that each patient receives the effective, individualized care they require.
